Plandent (part of Planmeca) is the largest dental distributor in Northern Europe and the second largest in Europe. They offer various services, appliances, and products to dental professionals, and strive to be Europe’s leading dental supplier and the number one choice for customers and manufacturers alike.
Our co-operation with Plandent in Finland extends to manufacturing of dental plates and bridge frames from remanium star CL (cobalt chrome alloy) with SLM metal 3D printing. Over the years the workflow has become simple and straightforward: Plandent provides us the CAD/CAM models they design for their clients, we print the final products, and ship them directly to the clients.
1. SCAN – A dentist or dental lab collects patient anatomy digitally or scans a physical model or impression.
2. DESIGN – The dentist or dental lab imports the scan data into CAD software and designs/builds/restores the model.
3. 3D PRINT – The dentist or dental lab sends the CAD/CAM model files to Materflow for manufacturing.
4. SHIP – After manufacturing, post processing, and quality check-up we’ll ship the products to the dentist or lab. The whole process takes usually 3-6 business days.
Patient information and data protection is important to us. We use secure systems and selected staff members to process the information and orders we receive. Our equipment and manufacturing processes comply with the 93/42/EEC Medical Device Directive.
